I was convinced that Fearless, by Max Lucado, would instantly “heal me.”
It has not. But it has given me the means to begin and continue on my road to healing.
I am normally a fast reader and this book could be a quick read. Except that I had to keep going back and re-reading paragraph after paragraph. Underlining. Highlighting. Writing in the margin. Inserting my own name in place of names and words that perfectly describe what I am going through and who I am: a person who struggles with fear.
Fearless (and Max Lucado) has given me scripture after scripture to turn to when my fear rises up. I underlined and highlighted sentence after sentence as “go to” helps when I begin to fear. I also underlined a few sentences that made me laugh out loud. For example on page 59 when discussing Sarah and Abraham. “I don’t know which is more amazing, that Sarah became pregnant at the age of ninety or that she and Abraham at that age were still trying to conceive.”
This was my first read through of Fearless. I will be reading it again and continuing through the Discussion Guide at the end of the book, which I did not do the first time.
This is a great book for anyone who struggles with fear, and even if you don’t, it will be a great reminder of God’s love.
